ONE BEDROOM COTTAGE 3 MINUTES TO CONVENTION CENTER/DOWNTOWN

San Diego Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Sleeper Couch, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Surrounded by tropical ambiance this cozy and charming bungalow is the perfect place to get away. Located in the heart of the old, unique and beautiful neighborhood of Golden Hill, this is a prime location for a visit to San Diego. Located on a side street there is ample, safe and free parking.

Within just a few blocks you have the choice of a plethora of delicious local eateries. Cook your own steak at the legendary Turf Club, enjoy Humberto’s famous carne asada fries, or have a stone oven pizza while enjoying the outdoor patio of Luigis.

Just 4 minutes away you can visit the baby panda’s at the zoo or take in a museum and a walk through beautiful Balboa Park. Head about 1 1/2 miles straight down Broadway into the lively downtown, Gaslamp or Little Italy, extremely convenient for Convention Center visits. If you are too tuckered after a busy day downtown, grab a bus as it drops you off just 1/2 block from the bungalow. Want to see a spectacular view of the San Diego bay? Hop on the ferry and cross the bay to Coronado for a day on the island. Golden Hill has easy access to all the major San Diego highways, making a trip to most San Diego beaches just 10-20 minutes away.

The bungalow is the perfect home away from home to return to after a funfilled day in San Diego. With granite countertops and stainless steal appliances, the kitchen provides all the amnemities needed to cook your own fish tacos! Pots, pans, cooking utensils, dishes are all provided. Sit under the avocado tree, and enjoy the dual BBQ and charcoal grill on the newly designed patio/lounge area while relaxing in our comfy lounge chairs. Beware of falling avocados! Grab them for some homemade guacamole!

Sit back on the couch and enjoy the flat screen tv with HDTV or hop on the internet with our free WiFi. Did your clothes get sandy at the beach? We have on site laundry with quarters provided.

Each room is decorated with the comforts of home in mind. Sheets, towels and blankets are all provided as well as dish soap, toilet paper and paper towels.

Have pets? We are a pet friendly property and the yard provides a great romp and play area for your dog.

Your safety and peace are our priority and we provide 24hour video survellience for the extra layer of security.

Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.

Terry Portwood and Kate Bedwell purchased this bungalow in 1990

This one bedroom is centrally located to major attractions in San Diego. Closeness of Convention Center, downtown, Gaslamp, and Balboa Park & Zoo is a major draw for tourists. We live close by to this property so we know first hand how convenient it is.

The closeness to the airport makes it easy for travel days. The bus line on the corner insures easy access to great restaurants in the Gaslamp. Taxi fares are not expensive if you don't have a car. Closeness to freeways insures quick access to beaches, whether it be Mission, La Jolla or Del Mar or across the bay to Coronado.

Great site- convenient for everything.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was lovely and very comfortable. I enjoyed sitting on the private porch with my morning coffee. The Internet connection, the kitchen out fittings, the linens- all extremely well done. Although some reviews felt the bathroom to be small, I thought it totally adequate. I walked each day to my conference at the Convention Center (about 30 minutes) although the bus was only one block away. I also went running in the park, about a 1/4 mile away. I fell in love with the Russian restaurant only three blocks from the apartment - great atmosphere, service and food. Thus, one can see the site was convenient for everything! All in all, a great find! I will wait to stay there again on my next trip to San Diego.

Close and Easy

  • 4 of 5
This was great little spot, so easy to access downtown and yet far enough away to be quiet. The bed is a soft one, not that this is bad, but if you need a firmer place to sleep the couch pull-out is very comfortable. It is only two blocks from the best Russian Food you will eat in your life! Parking was a challenge. I don't mind walking the two blocks back to the condo, but if you can't parallel or if you have a lot to carry, this isn't the place for you. Parking is not as easy as they say. But it's also not as HARD as the reviews make it seem. We always found a spot and it was never more than two blocks from the rental. Lots of hot water, clean and good TV. Very nice rental.

Great stay in San diego!

  • 5 of 5
This property was a last minute find. I booked it 2 weeks before our girls vacation and the owners were very nice and accommodating. The rental is exactly as described. We had a great stay here. Definitely recommend. My only complaint was that I found the wifi was a little slow.

Thank you for the feedback on the WiFi, we actually have completely replaced the WiFi over the last week as we did become aware it was running a little slow. We hope to see you again and you will enjoy speedy WiFi! Thank you Kate and Terry

Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5
Lovely small cottage that is well-maintained, clean, and is well-equipped with all needed amenities. We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 young children and it worked out quite well (couch pulls out to a queen bed). The location is wonderful --- in a quiet neighborhood, easy access to the highways, and close proximity to most tourist attractions. As noted in other reviews, parking is on the street but it was never a problem. The bathroom is small but it's fully functional so it wasn't an issue for us - I would recommend changing the toilet seat, however. The owner was polite, receptive, and quick to address a minor glitch with the WI-FI. We would definitely stay here again.

Home away from cold!

What a perfect place to visit sunny San Diego from the frozen tundra in North Dakota! I really appreciated the little touches that made this little bungalo feel like home . I will definitely book this home away from my home in the cold next year!

Not Quite Like The Description

  • 3 of 5
This was an average place but not quite up to what the description boasted. The parking situation was terrible! If you were out past dark you had to park 1-2 blocks away and then walk through what seemed like a bit of a sketchy area. The bathroom was around 25 square feet.. smaller than one in a RV.. very hard to maneuver in. The rest of the facility was very nice however.
